Two contradictory claims can't both be true, and what we have are thousands of them in the U.S. alone in regards to truth about who God is, what book about God is accurate, the way of salvation, and more. What we will do for the next few months is look at the "what" false religions teach, "why" it matters, and "how" to share the truth of the Gospel with them in truth and love. For the next 3 weeks we will be honing in on what the Mormons teach, why it matters, and how to share the truth with them. But, let's start with a "why" question.

Jesus will defeat the army of the Antichrist and bring the seven year Tribulation to an end. Following the Tribulation, Jesus will establish His Kingdom here on earth. In fulfillment of God's unconditional covenant promises to Abraham, Isaac, Jacob and their descendants many passages in the Old Testament speak of a future kingdom ruled by the Messiah during which time Israel will dwell securely in the land area God promised.  Further, the nation of Israel will be brought into the New Covenant as a nation and every Jew will know the Lord during the Messianic Kingdom (Jer. 31:31-40; 50:17-20). The expectation of a Messianic Kingdom is based on a large amount of material in the Old Testament Scriptures.

The contribution of Revelation 20:1-10 to the revelation of the Messianic Kingdom is that this passage reveals the duration of the Messianic Kingdom. It is stated six times in these ten verses that the Messianic Kingdom will last for one thousand years. The duration of the Messianic Kingdom was not revealed in the Old Testament. Revelation 20:1-10 clearly reveals a duration of one thousand years. When we refer to the Kingdom as the Millennial Kingdom we are emphasizing its duration. 

According to Daniel 12:11-13 there will be a seventy-five day interval between the end of the Tribulation and the beginning of the Millennial Kingdom. Many things will  take place in this interval including the binding of Satan and the resurrection of martyred Tribulation saints.
